Since websites are open to the internet, website vulnerabilities have the highest risk of being exploited. It may expose sensitive data which could be used for malicious practices. Thus, Web Application VAPT is of great importance to an organization.
Generally, websites are vulnerable to code or network-based attacks. If succeeded, the hacker takes over and can control the system components including switches, firewalls, routers and servers and even the website code. In severe cases, attacks can steal data and alter website operations. However, it is assumed that since the websites are simply HTML based, they are not prone to vulnerabilities. Whereas it is highly recommended to have a thorough security testing of websites, web applications or web portals, especially in case of e-commerce-based portals. Certified penetration testing (pen-testing) companies should be appointed for securing your IT infrastructure. It should be ensured that the company follows the security testing procedure based on OWASP Top-10 model.
